5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes because the professors truly care about each individual student. Every prof I've had is willing to help and easily accessible.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Just about all of the professors have incredible experience and are great for networking. There are always emails sent out about networking events.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Odds are, you'll get an awesome lake view. All of the dorms are close to everything. Other than that, they're pretty typical.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have a Greek Row which kinda sucks but Greek life is pretty huge at Carthage. We were actually voted frattiest college in Wisconsin. The fraternities and sororities all consist of different types of people, so if you're interested in rushing, there's totally a place for you somewhere.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our facilities are absolutely top-notch and many of our sports are some of the best in the country.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Carthage is a place which you can truly call home. There's a great mix of people from all walks of life, and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and get integrated with this close-knit community.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not had any problem with safety of myself or of my items, nor have I heard of anyone that has had a problem with theft or with safety problems on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Your classes are very small so you get to know your professors, sometimes on a first name basis. It really helps because you can reach out to them personally and they really want you to succeed in your classes and in your life.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not looking into much help for this yet because I am a freshman, but there are a lot of resources for people that are looking into this stuff.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: People always have their doors open and hangout with each other so you will always have friends on your floor to talk with.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are a lot of greeks, so you usually will know people in a Frat, so it sometimes makes it hard to hang out with them depending on how active the Frat is. But many Frats are pretty inclusive with non-greek members.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Although there are some small crowds at events, they are usually the same people so you get to know the group of people well and it is a great time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Carthage is a great small campus feel. I know people where ever I go and always have something to do.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't like that Greek life is so loud on campus. They are obnoxious. As individuals they are all great people, but put them in a group and it's just awful.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a lot of ticketing for parking, it seems to be the only thing that the security at campus does. However, the fact that they spend all their free time ticketing people means they have free time, meaning that the campus is pretty safe and they have nothing better to do. They are on call 24/7 too, so if you ever feel unsafe you just call.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have no words. House and greek parties or dirty bars. If that's your scene, that's cool, but as someone from a big city I am not used to such limited and boring options. Also keep in mind that Carthage is a dry campus, so there's that.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Helpful professors, students who want to learn, and a wide variety for such a small school. The academics at Carthage are its selling point for sure. Even the classes I hate have been worth my time. The registration process gives seniors priority, but as a Freshman I still got in to all of the classes I wanted. I guess it just depends on what classes you are choosing and when. The only thing I wish is that they had the same options both semesters. During my second semester I wanted to take Chemistry I and only Chem II was available.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Hardly any diversity. Most people are from the midwest, so there is a big white crowd. I'm latina, but I don't feel discriminated against, and their are clubs for minorities which you can join so you feel less alone.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Typical college dorm life. It depends on which residence you choose, but overall I think it satisfies most students.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym for people uninvolved in Carthage sports sucks. It's small and there are only 6 treadmills from like 1980. A lot of people are involved in athletics though, and they are passionate about what they do, but people outside the sport don't tend to care about it like they do.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of pot, but that is basically it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are very helpful. It's a small school, so they are very easy to approach and obviously they know your name and everything (unlike at larger schools). They are also very passionate about what they teach, which is a quality every professor should have.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a small school, but it does try its best to help you out with career opportunities and internships. You have to be involved though, so don't expect them to be handed to you.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: A lot of upper classmen go to bars but other then that there are house parties.
